Surgical devices

Wireless technologies, robotics, artificial intelligence and spatial navigation systems are creating opportunities for next generation surgical tools and devices.

The integration of this science is enabling better, more usable tools, faster, more accurate procedures, and an enhanced patient post-operative experience. We are currently working with multiple partners to bring numerous such technologies to market.

Case study

Developing the award winning Memphasys FELIX

Hydrix and its client, Memphasys, were recipients of two 2020 Good Design Awards for the design of an instrument and cartridge system that helps improve outcomes in IVF.

Hydrix was recently recognised with multiple Good Design Awards for its role in the design and engineering of the FELIX, an automated, electrophoretic laboratory instrument for sperm separation for use in Assisted Reproductive Technology (IVF) procedures. The novel technology aims to improve the chances of achieving a successful pregnancy for infertile couples.

“The device is a world-first technology, so it is highly encouraging when independent assessors review the design and deem the device to be an example of class-leading engineering.”
